Fairy Fun!

My daughter and I love fairies!  Since before we moved.. we had planned to decorate her room in fairies.  We picked out a pretty soft lavender for the walls and my mom found a great Fairy bedspread from Kohls.   (The flowers are from her bedroom when she was 2 and we just couldn't part with them since they are so cheerful!) 

Recently I decorated her room by painting a huge lifesize fairy across the wall above her bed.   It is literally 4 feet long!

I really wanted to glue a fairy wand to her hand and hang a heart from her other hand.. but my husband would NOT allow glue on his precious new walls!
I also added a cute fairy mirror to the wall so that she can imagine herself as a fairy.

She picked out all of the colors, including the wings and skirt!
It has become a tradition in our family that in each of the kids bedroom's I paint a mural for them.  They are lots of work soo much fun to do and the kids love them.  So far we have done a page from "Caterpillar Spring, Butterfly Summer" and a garden.   Next we are going to work on a huge pirate mural for the boys.. stay tuned!  I would love to hear what kind of bedrooms your kids have and what you have made to make them special!

  1. How cute is that fairy? That is such a great idea, painting a mural on the children's walls. I would love to do that for the new room I'm doing that both kids will share. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. How darling!!! You have to do a wand! Check the scrapbooking dept for glue dots that are removable and won't mar the wall. Or even those 3M hooks. I know those don't mar the walls 'cause I use them all the time. She just HAS to have a wand!

    Would love for you to stop by Sunday and link her up to Passion for Paint!
